Niçard

There are six Occitan dialects: Gascon, Languedocian, Limousin, Auvergnat, Provençal, and Vivaro-Alpine (Alpine Provençal). Nissart or Niçois (a form of coastal provencal), because of its proximity, shows Italian influences (Liguria). Provencal itself can be divided into four dialectal varieties (rhodanian, maritime, gavot (Forcalquier-Castellane), Niçard). The provencal variations are essentially phonetic, except for Niçard which preserves many archaisms. This is due to the political separation with Provence in the end of the 14th century. If the literature of Oc languages is old and important, it is too in Provence. Mistral and his disciples the felibres are the worthy representatives.Their provencal dialect was the rhodanian variant.

Name

Occitan language will be first called limousin in the 12th century because it was the region of the first troubadours, then it will be called Provençal because it was the name in the Middle Ages of the entire province. We owe Dante the term Oc. Currently the word provençal designates the dialects of the current Provence and Oc those of the neighboring province. In fact all this remains ambiguous and all these dialects are of course forms of Occitan.
